Re: Orgins of William CC Chen Tai Chi boxing skills?

No offense, but, given that you are not his student, I'm not surprised you didn't get a response. The privilege of being able to ask questions is something that a student earns over time. Well known teachers get deluged with questions from people they've never met. Thank for the reply Scott, I appr...

Orgins of William CC Chen Tai Chi boxing skills?

I emailed William CC Chen himself but never got a reply, but after learning some San Shou from several of his students, it seems that many have hinted that Cheng Man Ching (CMC) is not William Chen's only teacher. Maybe he met and collaborated on his San Shou and fighting skills with many other teac...

Re: Self Defense for the Streets

Linda, sorry to hear about your fellow country mate. I would go with J Young on this- the situation looks gloomy- bite, scratch, pull hair, smash heads into objects (walls, floor, chairs), grab something to hit them with like a bottle...I would add- if you have a pen or key- attack the eyes or throa...

Re: Self Defense for the Streets

If you have doubts about so called masters stamina and skill, you should challenge them yourself. I don't think that body size has anything to do with being a master or having skill. You might look down on them because they are big and soft, they might look down on you for not being big and soft. T...

Re: Self Defense for the Streets

Yes, if you add muscle mass to a body that is already out of alignment it may compound ones ability to apply Taijiquan principles. Perhaps Adam Smith was referring to Taiji boxing not western style boxing? In which case a different methodology in regard to power and strategy is employed. The classi...

Are you talking about boxing creating unwanted body mass?

This brings up another question as to content in the seminars- We have discussed the hand and foot striking and stepping movements. This brings up new questions with taiji san shou in relation to the 13 principles of taiji- 8 methods 1. peng- ward off- you touched a little on this 2. lu- you touched...
